Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by akyrabbit Not a great value for a November time period
It appears that the hotel was built a number of years ago and has not been updated since. NEEDS to be updated. Carpet in the side entrance was stained and looked dirty. The hallway door to the side entrance would not close. The hotel had a musty smell to it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LVH82 Very nice room, the breaksfast was very good as well
Our room was very nice with one small irritation, each time the refrigerator came on it would knock several times, it sounded as though someone was knocking on the door, this happened several times during the night, The lady at the front desk said she would have it corrected.

We usually stay at this hotel around once a month. The staff is always friendly and it's right next to the greatest happy hour on the beach.....voted 2013...Hurricanne Moe's.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by womanbarber Good location but old and dingy. Staff was very nice.
I booked this room for a long weekend for a family trip. The beds seemed clean but the room is old and the walls are so thin.
I could hear every guest beside and above of us talking and snoring all night. The floors above us sounded like they were going to fall in over our head they were so thin and noisy. The wall paper in the rooms were all peeling off and had a old smell. We thought with the name it was going to be a good hotel but that was not the case. The best thing I can say was that the staff was very friendly. Desperate need of a total make over.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MattW Clean room walking distance to the beach
I found a deal on Google for this Holiday Inn Express on Kitty Hawk. When we arrived we were greeted very kindly and given a welcome bag of goodies. We discovered to our delight that we were a very short walking distance to the beach behind the hotel. Literally a 2 minute walk along a little well worn path and across a beach road to the shore. The hotel even has an outdoor shower area to wash away the sand.
Bed's were nice and I had no trouble feeling comfortable because the sheets and linens were so clean. All the staff were courteous and genuinely friendly. Only issue was there wasn't enough seating in the down stairs lobby during breakfast as a large family took up most of the tables.

The TV didn't work, the staff had to bypass the new box because they said it was not installed correctly. Why was it not checked before we got there?
The property looked old and worn.
We will not be staying there again or recommend it to other people.

We stayed here on October 3rd,4th and 5th, what prompted us to stay her was the reviews that we saw on your website but were totally disapointed when we checked in,we planned on staying here for 5 days but that changed,when we got the room,we were looking around and just noticed some things that were not to liking,so we stayed in this room the first night,we noticed that the room was not as clean as we read on the reviews what other people considered clean we didn't,the beds were comfortable but the bedskirts were filthy and the air unit was filthy,we could see dirt under the cover where the filter was and the unit was ok, but we wanted to stay after a 7 and a half drive,we were tired,so decided to stay,it was very noisy at night from the second floor and we were across from the vending machines and ice machine which made it even louder, the next morning we asked to be moved to a second floor,was not a very restful sleep,so they moved us to a second floor at the end of the hallway across from the stairway which was o.k this room reaked of smoke,we had to buy lysol to spray in the room,the rooms are very outdated,the only thing that was new or decent looking was the flat screen TV. so that night I went to take a shower and the lift on the shower fell out in my hand,everything did,we called the front desk,and a clerk came up and try to fix it but coulden't so I never got to take a shower or rinse,it was just riducoulus,so they sent a maintenace person up the next morning and he fixed the problem and we then decided not to stay,he recommended another hotel in kill devil hills and we checked it out and were sastified,very clean and accomodating, so we checked out of this holiday inn and went there.the only good thing here was the breakfast,never will go back here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vickit12 Comfortable, clean, great service.
We were glad to be able to stay at a Holiday Inn Express in Kitty Hawk. Our experiences with the chain has always been good and Kitty Hawk was great. The bed, pillows, and ability to darken room made for a great night's sleep. Everything there was clean and the staff were so helpful, advising us of great places to eat and, as IHG Rewards Club members, giving us a gift bag of snacks on arrival. We were traveling on our Harley trike up the Outer Banks and had been riding for several days. This inn certainly made it possible for us to get a safe, comfortable night's sleep!
